This week we discuss technology, everything from the wheel to 8-track tapes to TiVo. But seriously, we start with a recent California case that may or may not be heard by the Supreme Court having to do with banning the sale of violent video games to minors. The demonization of violent video games is often traced back to Doom and its use by the Columbine killers – though a study showed it had nothing to do with their motivations.
We also discuss Epic Mix, Vail Resorts new RFID enabled software system that will track your comings and goings at all their resorts. Technology-enhanced fun or Big Brother on the slopes?
Finally, we recommend some of our favorite local (and not so local) apps.
Joel Warner was on assignment in Aurora this Friday, but we did have a special in studio guest in the form of video game journalist and CU professor Dave Thomas.
Jared endorses Denver Parcel app, which will tell you the ownership and sale history of just about any building based on your location at the moment. Creepy!
Dave gives a shout out to The Denver Manual, it costs $1.99. He hasn’t used it yet, but plans to as it will surely give clues to the whereabouts of Denver’s subway system.
